So, what is live-in care? It is the care that makes a difference to your life
There is much more that a live in carer can provide than is typically associated with elderly care. Of course, they provide the necessary personal care but it is the emotional support, the one-to-one time and the time to just sit and chat that can make all the difference.
Naturally, there are some older people with complex medical conditions: Dementia or Parkinson’s disease, say, but again with the right carer and the right nursing support it is still possible to have in home care. In fact, in the case of dementia, the additional social interaction available to those with care provided at home has actually been shown to improve quality of life. A carer working with a client in their own home can either organise nursing care or may themselves have the right clinical skills to provide the medical assistance needed.

Find the right live-in carer
Even for those who are ill or frail, a live-in carer and a care program tailored to your needs means you can continue living your life in the way you want, as far as is possible, with the security of dedicated one-to-one support 24/7. That means security for you and peace of mind for your family.
But it is still a big step to have someone come and live in your home. Apart from the practicalities of having enough room to accommodate a carer there may also be concerns about how you will feel emotionally having someone new living with you. Those concerns are perfectly natural and you should talk them through with friends and family first.
